About the Workshop

OSEW brings the architecture/systems-security community together to make progress towards building open-source, secure, performant enclaves. In particular, we will discuss the different, realistic threat models, the components for secure enclaves, best practices and state-of-the-art techniques for each component, and open problems in this space. Our agenda and information for (OSEW 2018) is available.

This years workshop included invited talks from different research and industry groups on relevant topics, panel discussions on current topics, and contributed talks. For the summary of OSEW 2019, check out our blog post.
